Vikings cornerback Terence Newman had a week to look around.
He apparently didn’t find a better offer than staying put.
According to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, the veteran cornerback has agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal to stay with the Vikings.
Newman wanted to stay with the Vikings, but sometimes it takes time for two sides to agree on what that means.
He’s 37, but still playing at a high level, and remains an important of Mike Zimmer’s defense. Having brought him in from Cincinnati, Zimmer knows exactly what he brings to the table, and must have convinced someone it was $3 million worth.
